Whoopi Goldberg was suspended by ABC from her role on the talk show “The View” earlier this week after she outrageously claimed that the Holocaust was not about race. Now, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is sounding off to give her thoughts on this.
Goldberg claimed on Monday’s show that the Holocaust could not have been about race because she believes Nazis and Jews were two groups of white people. Check out the comments that got her suspended below.
After maliciously minimizing the atrocities of the Holocaust, leftists have now begun to rewrite the nature and the history of the Holocaust.

While addressing Goldberg’s suspension on Fox News, McEnany could not help but point out the irony of this entire situation.
“When cancel culture comes for the cancellers,” McEnany said. “I don’t believe in cancel culture. I really don’t. But what’s ironic about this is these ladies do believe in cancel culture. I had to do a cursory Google of the times they talked about cancel culture, when ‘Gone with the Wind’ was the subject of cancellation, and ‘Cops,’ and other shows. And they had a guest host say, ‘You do something horrible sometimes there’s a comeuppance.’”
McEnany went on to point out that Goldberg’s liberal cohost Sunny Hostin has argued on the ABC talk show that there should have “always been a zero-tolerance policy for racially insensitive behavior at work.”
“It was only Meghan McCain who said, ‘Guys, this is a slippery slope maybe we should stand up against cancel culture.’ Good for Meghan McCain,” McEnany continued. “But [it’s] interesting when the cancel culturerers become the subject of cancel culture.”
This came after ABC President Kim Godwin suspended Goldberg on Tuesday night.
“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” Godwin said at the time, according to Daily Mail. “While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments. The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”
However, many have argued that suspending Goldberg is not enough, with insiders saying that some ABC staffers are fuming that Roseanne Barr was fired for making her own comments that were deemed to be racist. They feel that suspending Goldberg for two weeks amounts to nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
“These comments are absolutely abhorrent and outrageous and it’s time Disney and ABC grew a pair and fired her,” said one source at ABC.
